President Bola Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Policy and Coordination, Hadiza Bala Usman, has said that the underperforming ministers will be axed from the cabinet soon.

Usman, a former Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), restated Tinubu’s earnestness in delivering on his promise to make life better and easier for Nigerians.

At the opening of the technical retreat for delivery desk officers of federal ministries on implementation of presidential priorities and ministerial deliverables in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital on Wednesday, she tasked directors of planning in ministries to be committed to delivering the “Renewed Hope Agenda” of the President.

She said: “We must understand that the president is very serious about his promises and that ministers will be assessed, and ministers will be dropped if they don’t perform.

“You must understand that as ministerial delivery desk officers, you are the engine room that will provide that feedback, constantly track ministerial progress, and report challenges and bottlenecks to the central coordinating and delivery unit (CDCU).

“As I was saying at the ministry of aviation recently, we will be assessing FAAN on customer experience at the airports; are the escalators, lifts, and conveyor belts functional? How swift is security clearance for both passengers and vehicles accessing the airport?

“What are the consequences of a delayed time of departure for airlines? These are things that everybody can feel and see.

“When we are talking about agriculture, we want to see our index of fertilizer use per hectare grow in view of the attendant investment that has been made in fertilizer interventions.”
